PM should ask police to withdraw FIR against me: Swamy
New Delhi: Janata Party President Subramanian Swamy today said Prime Minister Manmohan Singh should intervene and ask the Delhi Police to withdraw a case filed against him for spreading enmity between communities.
Calling the FIR "stupid" and "vapid", he suggested that it was motivated by the fear of his "relentless investigations" into the 2G spectrum scam.
The Crime Branch had registered a case under Section 153A (spreading enmity between communities) of the Indian Penal Code for his newspaper article in July this year.
The Harvard-educated economic scholar had in an article in a newspaper suggested that Indian Hindus should collectively respond to terror acts.
